I fully retired, and wanted a German Shorthair Pointer to keep me active and be my hunting buddy. It had been 30 years since I had a dog. Friends told me that I should not get a GSP because they were too high strung, hard to control, destructive, etc.. I looked around for a breeder and ended up going to Upland Kennels. I told Julie my future plans, and that I wanted a buddy that would keep me active throughout my retirement. Julie listened to my story and called me one day and said that she had the perfect puppy for me and my family. We received Bree in DEC 20, and we never looked back. She is the sweetest most sensitive dog that you can every get. She is smart, fun, funny, lovely, and a perfect family pet. My wife and family just loves her. I sent her to Gun dog training, in which they turned her into a Bird Hunting Machine. Every time I go hunting, she is beautiful to watch. She finds birds over land that has just been hunted by other dogs. Other hunting dog owners are amazed at how young and good she is. We get comments from people on the street on how well mannered and pretty she is, and she is only 18 months old! Julie really cares and keeps tabs on her dogs, I always take pictures of Bree hunting and send them to her as well as sharing my hunting stories. I am so happy with that pup, that I want another one. I am already in discussion with Julie about getting another pup in a year. If you want a GSP, you can't go wrong Upland Hills Kennels. They are just good people.

I have had 8 wonderful shorthairs, since 1992. I met Julie Norman online 7-8 years ago. I was looking for a pup. She didn't have any of her shorthair pups available. BUT she found me one. He's Trekker descent, he is an amazing dog. In January 2021 I wanted one last pup (I turned 70 in November) Julie had puppies. She invited my husband and I to look at the pups. What a beautiful place, all of her dogs are Beautiful, I would live at Upland Hills. She is hands on with her pups all day and night. Puppies are introduced to kids, birds, obstacle courses, music, TV, vacuum, crates, you name it. Best socialized, started pup I ever had. Burke's Uplandhills Radiant Dawn will be my last Shorthair. Dawn brought us her first Dove when she was 8 weeks old. Anyone will be blessed to get an Upland Hills Shorthair!

Hi - I have received my second pup from Uplandhills (Julie). My first GSP Stella that is now 13 years old, She is the most social dog I have ever had along with a true hunting machine. Julie has followed Stella's growth and development over the years. Julie helped me in getting Stella into a hunting training course when Stella was a pup. With Stella getting older in her days, I reached out to Juiie last summer asking her if she had any new litters up and coming. I told her I couldn't handle a puppy until post Elk season (not fair to a new puppy to leave them for extended period of time). Julie come through with a great GSP named Aspen. Aspen is a super smart pup. Aspen's great granddad is Stella's father.
Julie has done a wonder job with the Uplandhills line of great dogs that are awesome hunting machines. Please check out Julie awesome line of great dogs.
Thank you Julie for your work

Upland Hills Kennels was excellent, and I highly recommend. Julie was incredibly gracious with her time and expertise throughout the whole process: from our questions to select a breeder, to visits to meet the parents and puppies, to her questions on our family’s needs and wants in both a family companion and hunting dog. The care and attention to the puppies is outstanding. While it showed throughout, we felt it especially on day 1 of taking our pup home: a happy, healthy puppy “just right” for our family; a detailed overview of next steps for bonding, vet visits and home care; a new friend in Julie with whom we will share how our pup is growing, and to whom we know to reach out with any question moving forward. Bringing home a new puppy is literally a life changing event, and the care we received at Upland Hills Kennels meant that we have the confidence and groundwork (and excellent pup!) to navigate assuredly. Thank you Julie!

Julie is amazing!! I have always wanted a GSP and Julie not only listened to what I was looking for, but she went above and beyond to locate the right puppy for my life style. Julie was very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and extremely passionate about this breed. She was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns and never hesitated to remind me that she was here to help and loves to communicate!! I felt like part of a family. I was absolutely blown away by her customer service and friendly demeanor. This is my first time locating a GSP pup and I will never go to anyone else! She made this process streamline and easy. I am very excited for this new adventure at having my very own GSP. Thank you Julie for all you do and for the care you take in matching the right dog to the right owner. Your love for this breed shows and thanks for caring.

Julie is absolutely wonderful! I reached out to her in search of my very first GSP pup and within two days she had connected me with a breeder. She helped me through the entire process and led me to someone she trusted. Thanks to her I will be bringing my first GSP home June 10th and I could not be more excited. If you need help finding your next dog I highly recommend you at least reach out to Julie as she would be more than happy to chat and point you in the right direction. Thanks for everything Julie. You are a Rockstar!

When I first talked to Julie on the phone a little over 2 years ago, I knew she was the right person to help us find our new German Shorthaired Pointer. During our phone conversations, Julie explained the testing all of her dogs go through and details about the pedigrees. We knew we'd get an outstanding pup! Here I am, 2 years later, bursting with nothing but positive things to say about Upland Hills Kennel. The male we purchased is a phenomenal family dog with a great temperament, loves to go on hikes with us, has a great nose for birds, and is very well structured. We love him so much that we just bought our second pup from Upland Hills Kennel. The moment we decided it was time for a second GSP, I knew I could rely on Julie for guidance. She is also great with communication by being honest and answering all the questions we have. We feel truly blessed to have found such a marvelous breeder. I happily recommend Upland Hills Kennel to everyone for their values, integrity, and high standards for German Shorthaired Pointers.

Julie and brad are probably the most honest breeders I could have asked for! I have bought 3 dogs from her and will continue to use there years of experience and knowledge on GSPs and Labs. I will not go anywhere else for my labs or gsps. Currently we are about to get a 4th dog from there amazing breeding! Julie has guided us ever step of the way providing us with vet info and bloodline info that is unmatched. She knows these dogs thru and thru. I am excited with the relationship we have built and will continue to work together on every aspect of my kennel. They are the definition of integrity. They stand behind there dogs, and will do anything for there customers!

Julie and Brad are some of the kindest people on earth. We were looking for a puppy when our lab spaniel started to get older. Julie and Brad were very accommodating when it came to coordinating meeting up with them. As soon as we met them it was clear that they live and breath care for these dogs. They are invested in great heathy happy GSPs and owners. Selling us a dog wasn’t at all their top priority. They were clearly looking to find a good fit for this puppy first and foremost. Even after getting our dog, Julie remains supportive and helpful. She’s an amazing resource. Great people and great dogs. Upland is world class.

Julie was aboslutely amazing!
She was always availible to answer any questions we had, and was with us every step of the way with Clover.
We were amazed by how knowledgeable Julie was about GSPs and how much she loves her dogs, along with getting to know each indivdual pup in the litter to help us pick the perfect one!
He truly is the perfect puppy, with a little something for everyone!
He is high energy for my dad, extremely intelligent and easy to train for me (because i love dog traning) , and a snuggly sweetheart for my mom who loves to lay down on the couch and read...
a book with clover on her chest!
When we went to pick Clover up he was in amazing health and was very well cared for!
Since we brought him home he has been nothing but a delight and is unbelievably affectionate and well tempered.
We have all been enjoying the hilarious puppy antics and watching him grow so quicly.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Julie to anyone who is looking for an extremely well tempered, well bred, and intelligent GSP.
